The minor provides students with the ability to integrate the ecological and cultural dimensions of landscape architecture into their course of study. Studies are about repairing and sustaining natural systems in cities, about the history of human settlements, places, and gardens in urban landscapes, and about the cultural and aesthetic meanings of landscape architecture design. This is an excellent emphasis for students in environmental studies, civil engineering, planning and anthropology. This minor is not available to architecture majors.
Students in good academic standing who have completed the freshman year are eligible.
The minor in landscape architecture consists of three required courses (10 units) and a minimum of 10 units of upper-division courses.
